I have been making visits to eye doctors for 30+ years. Dr. Abbot was the first time in years (since I've seen my family eye doctor as a college student!) that I really felt like I wasn't being rushed through theappointment. I have really poor eye sight and a high risk for eye issues because of this. Dr. Abbot was very thorough and made sure she checked for all possible risks. The front office staff was also fantastic about explaining prices for glasses and contacts as well as making sure I didn't feel pressured to purchase anything immediately. Because of my high prescription, my glasses are always extremely expensive. They figured out multiple ways for me to use rebates and credits to try and get the price down and then encouraged me to take some time to think about it and then give them a call back. I will definitely be returning to purchase glasses and for my next eye exam. Very impressive customer service and Dr. Abbot obviously knows her stuff!

Dr. Abbott was great. She gave me plenty of time and what felt like a very thorough and detailed examination. I'd recommend her in a heartbeat. My biggest concern and I wasn't sure where else to post this was that theyare based in a glasses store, and while I didn't at all mind the "upsell" on having the opportunity to buy contacts and glasses from them, I was very disappointed when they were not inclined and didn't outright give me all the information I needed to order glasses elsewhere. It was not Dr. Abbott, but someone who worked in the store that was visually unhappy when I asked for my pupil distance measurements, and initially pushed back saying I'd get those when I bought glasses from them in the store.

This was the best experience I have had with any optometrist. She is so pleasant and kind, plus very good at her job. The appointment was very speedy but I felt like we were able to talk about my concerns inmy vision and she did a lot of tests to make sure I was in good eye health and would get the best possible prescription. I highly recommend her and her entire team at Eye Q, they were so personable right when you walk in.
